I do not know what going to happen when I reach Canberra, but I do know in my heart an mind I must try because it need to be done to change this country and this world we live in. But I hope it well be something that this country will never forget and it well help change this country way to do better to build a better country and a better world we live in.

All that matter now is to speak the truth from the heart to make this men in suit and everyone else who live here to change they way and do better than they know them self now.

I hope in year to come people well talk about the walk for justice that a man who was just young walk across a land thought different country for his people and for everyone else. Walk all the way to the capital city call Canberra to speak the truth and send a message he collected from his people and from every one else on this journey that made him did it in the first place.

The walk well live on and the name the spirit walker well live on when I go and pass on. A man who walk across a country bring hope and change and all the way to capital city to tell men in suit to change they way because he believe and he believe in a dream could made a difference.

Our walk to these lands was to walk in the foot step of people of this land, it turned out that the song that was playing, was that the song of the song line that they were showing us at that moment in time. They play it when they check out the rock holes and move on the song line, we walked up here on an ancient land, I discovered that I was walking on a culture highway that has been walked on for more than fourty thousand years, listing to the song that would tell us the was to go, they live and breath the past, the present and still walk on into their future, I was with people that could show me the time that they have lived on this land, I would be proud of the link to the land to, it pleases me to be here to see a ancient culture today.” – Noonie

14908225_1884606045095916_3232392658533933231_n-1When we was at Wiluna. This two statue is to honor the last of the nomad’s. The two old people who was find out in the Gibson Desert name where Warri and Yatungka. Warri and Yatungka were believed to be the last of the Mandildjara tribe of the desert nomads to live permanently in the traditional way. Their deaths in the late 1970s marked the end of a tribal lifestyle that stretched back more than 30,000 years.

I think about this two amazing people that they name well live on through out the century to come and that our people well know that this two were the last two people in our culture way. Who live the old way before our people change in to this modern world we live now. I still reading the book and I up to page 52 now and it starting to make me understand more about this two and how they live they life before passing on.

14906841_1674252162885197_8750057346895803166_nClinton’s Crossing

A Nyungah man is walking cross Australia
A Nyungah, Clinton Pryor is his name
This south-west man is walking now for justice
He’s travelling and calling for a change
He’s walking from Perth across to Canberra
He’s walking, to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too
You might think a Nyungah walking in the out- back
Would hardly make a scratch upon a wall
But first week he got a call to say sorry
That the “Sorry” said had made no change at all
And as leader spoke to leader on the cell phones
The sun rose higher in the sky

A Nyungah man is walking his country
Walking proud… .and asking why
A Nyungah man is walking Australia
He’s one of the willing and the few
They’re walking all the way to Canberra
Where politicians do…. what they do
He’s gathering the stories of his people
And listening to the stories of the land
Sending out a daily record on his face book
So people in the city understand
Exposing the failures in the system
Learning of the sorrow and the pain
The growing list of promises broken
The struggle, always struggle with no gain
A Nyungah man is crossing Australia
And calling for a right to the wrongs
For an end to injustice and the failure
To find a way that we can all belong

A Nyungah Man is walking this country
He’s walking to get a message through
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too.
Sometimes days without a signal
Solid road becomes dirt track
But TV News and film crews
Are now crossing the out-back
To Leanora, Laverton,
And Warburton as well
And Clinton’’s walk for Justice
Is the story that they tell
He’s walking in the heat of the desert
Through the centre and on past Uluru
You might not know it ….
You might not know him…
But he’s walking Australia for you too


Day 58: 12.30pm

[Admin Jake] One of Clinton’s friends and supporters had been discussing a pair of painted up steel capped boots for Clinton.

About two to three weeks ago, Marcia sent her finished artwork off from Queensland to her partner Wazza in Perth. Wazza and his Dad then drove the boots out to Clinton over the space of a couple of days, past Kalgoorlie and handed them over to Clinton. Below are a few beautiful pics that only just touch on the story.

The boots also accompanied a letter from Ngallagunda remote community which Clinton is reading in one if the photos, which they wish for Clinton to present to Mr Turnbull in Canberra.

Thank you to Marcia, Wazza and Wazza’s Dad and the Ngallagunda remote conmunity and everyone else that contributes to Clinton’s journey.

Much love! You are all fantastic!

They have tried to silence us through threats and intimidation but the world needs to know what is happening on these cattle stations and how morally bankrupt people are actively and persistently working to take over our aboriginal run stations. If there is someone reading this who has any kind of legal or social background that can lend advise or time the mob at Ngallagunda will welcome conversation with you. Pm me and I can put you in touch with them. Thank you for all the kind words also. And Clinton, you’re a legend – you will go down in history.” – Marcia

But this walk is for everyone and to show them it only take one person to change the world we live in. The power of one. Though out history is it is the action of one person that can inspired the movement of change. I’m doing this for my family, my friends, my people, my follower, Australia and for the world.

Day 40: (Rest Day) Leonora

9am

14713555_707501112733694_643005039562716425_nGood morning all firstly I just wanted to thanks Richard & Sandra Evens from Leonora town for doing a welcome to country and doing a BBQ when we first arrive in Leonora town and doing a dinner over they place where we meet the elders and talking with them about want being happen in Leonora town.

Also just wanted to thank Jill Ashwin for helping us and letting us stay at her place to rest up and get supply again for the walk we need for the desert road.

Now we are now on our way walking to Laverton town and mute be off Facebook for about 3 days guys. O.k but see how it go. I well be back on Facebook when I can.


11am

14671363_707576622726143_1019701656111211323_nI get closer and closer everyday to this spot that I screen shot from the computer couple month back. This spot is the last road before it changes to dirt road call the Central Desert Road from Laverton, Warburton and on to Uluru the heart land people. I get closer and closer to the hardest part of the walk and it well be hard because the temperature can get up to 50 degree’s and also negative 7 degrees. But also fire, hot wind and the ground get hot as well. Nature itself is the only thing against me on this center desert road.

Everyone on Facebook, the media, the Government, the nation and the world it self well be watching this part of the walk to see if I can do it or give up and go back to Perth. All eyes well be watching this part of the walk. If I make it or pass it. It well explode all over social media everyone well be talking about it.

I know in my heart I can do this and I well never give up or give in because I choose to believe in my self that I can do this part. The support and the love I get from family, my people, my Friends, the followers, the country and the world it self well give me the strength to push through this part of the walk and to get justice for my people and for this country.

But I think to my self what do people say about me or talk to other about me when I do this part. I know I well go down in the history book, come Australia icon and my people well tell story about me when I’m gone from this earth. But well it change this country to change it way. All I want is for my culture to live on for other 60,000 years or more and think to get better for my people.

But most of all to seen this country come together and seen a Aboriginal leader running this country. But also start working on building a better country and a better world for all life who live on it that share this world with us. But in the end I choose to believe and I well never stop until I see this dream happen when I’m alive.


14691033_708464252637380_8496113878264504708_nWe have done some much scene and acting with NITV. It was like we was making a movie and I feel that tired I just wanted to go to bed or go to the pub for a beer. But it good NITV are following us and filming the walk. I think they going to made a documentary or mite turn it in to a movie after the walk is finish. Also I just wanted to thank NITV for giving us a satellite phone to help us keep in connected with family and friend because now we a entering the hardest part of the walk that could lead to death or not. But we are ready and cannot wait to start the walk from Laverton on to Warburton.
